For people who want to concentrate on the most nutrient dense and beneficial foods.

So mostly recipes high in the most nutrient dense plant foods or foods high in a nutrient known to be beneficial to acne, skin or just really good for health. Like omega 3s or zinc, as in a recipe for shellfish, the richest source. Or high in anti-inflammatory nutrients like your dark greens, tumeric (curry), onions, garlic, etc.

(Be sure to check out the Food and Recipe index of threads full of recipes and meal ideas:
http://www.acne.org/...ce-t205099.html)


I'll start with a Cilantro Pumpkin Seed Pesto sauce from whfoods.org.

They call it pesto, but it seems to be more like Chimichurri sauce from south America. Often eaten on steak.

Full of good anti-inflammatory herbs and spices. And pumpkin seeds are a quality protein high in zinc, magnesium. Onions and garlic are sources of sulfur compounds. Cilantro chelates metals like mercury. Pesto/chimichuri is good on fish, chicken, pasta, as a veggie dip, etc.

Hot peppers are usually not in pesto or chimichurri, but they are are sources of capsaicin which is good for digestion and another anti-inflammatory so if you like hot sauce, by all means include them.

Ingredients:

* 2 cups chopped fresh cilantro
* 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
* 3 scallion, chopped
* 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
* 1 tsp ground cumin
* 2 or 3 canned jalapenos, depending on desired heat
* � cup coarsely chopped pumpkin seeds
* 2 TBS water
* 1 TBS fresh lemon juice
* 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
* salt and white pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to enhance their health-promoting properties while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
2. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add olive oil a little at a time at end. You want the pesto to be blended yet not smooth. It is best with a little texture. Serve at room temperature. Do not heat it.

Another one from whfoods.org. You can subscribe and get things like these emailed to you daily.

I'm sure by now everyone should no the importance of dark greens. Nutrient dense and source of very beneficial to liver sulfur compounds which are also anti-inflammtory. Onions, garlic and tumeric are another source of sulfur. Sweet potatoes are great source of beta carotene and hyaluronic acid which is good for retaining moisture in the skin.

Note: All those spices are pretty much what's in curry powder, so you could just use that.

This recipe is also a very good source of B6, magnesium, calcium, etc. Nutritional profile

Grilled Rosemary-Salmon Spedini
2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 pint cherry tomatoes

Directions
1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
2. Combine rosemary, oil, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add salmon; toss to coat. Alternating the salmon and tomatoes, divide among eight 12-inch skewers.
3. Oil the grill rack. Grill the skewers, carefully turning once, until the salmon is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes total. Serve immediately.

I'd broil or use an indoor grill pan or George Foreman type grills so there's no issue with fish falling through the grill. And if the rosemary branches are big enough, use them for skewers.

Serve with sauteed spinach or steamed broccoli.

-----------------------------------------------------
Or follow this simpler recipe posted by meat-pirate adding spinach when everything else is done. Oh, and use only sweet potatoes, of course. White potatoes add nothing to this dish. You can leave out the tomatoes too, if you like:

West Indian Potato Curry
courtesy of Foodland Ontario (foodland.gov.on.ca)

2 Tbsp vegetable oil - use coconut oil
2 onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp minced fresh ginger root
1 Tbsp curry powder (or to taste)
2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 canned tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock or water
1/2 tsp salt

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onions, garlic and ginger until softened. 2 to 3 minutes. Add curry powder; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add regular and sweet potatoes, tomatoes, stock and salt, bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender.
-----------------------------------

Califlower and peas are also good veggies in a curry.

Curried carrot soup from realage.com

Because of the sulfur, carotenes and phyto-nutrients in the onions, curry powder, carrots. Use a better oil. Drizzle servings with olive oil before eating to add healthy fat. A dollop of your live cultured organic yogurt if you can tolerate it, would be good. It always goes well with curried things. And get yourself a stick immersion blender to puree soups in the pot.

Ingredients


* 3 tablespoon(s) canola oil
* 2 teaspoon(s) curry powder
* 8 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
* 4 medium stalks celery, thinly sliced
* 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
* 5 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
* 1 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
* Freshly ground pepper , to taste

Directions

1. Cook oil and curry powder in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in carrots, celery and onion; toss to coat in oil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables are very tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; let stand 10 minutes. Lay a paper towel over the surface of the soup to blot away the oil that has risen to the top. Discard the paper towel.
2. Working in batches of no more than 2 cups at a time, transfer the soup to a blender and puree (use caution when pureeing hot liquids). Return the pureed soup to the pan, place over medium heat and heat through. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

I'm not sure if this really counts as nutrient dense, but it's pretty tasty, healthy and fast for those of us who are lazy or short on time:

Instant Almond Bread (gluten, dairy, soy, grain and sugar free)

2 eggs
3/4 cups of water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
about 2 cups of blanched almond flour

Just beat it all in a bowl until it forms a batter or extremely thick paste.

Pour it out into a rectangular microwave safe dish. Microwave it for 3.5-6 minutes depending on your microwave and batter consistency. (I nuked it for about 5 minutes)

It'll actually rise up and make a pretty thick, tasty "bread." The texture is soft though mildly grainy - not too far off from a hearty whole grain bread. It is a little more moist than traditional breads.

I made this and my dad even liked it - which says A LOT. There has never been a healthy food he has ever liked. You could also add other nutrient things to it, making it more nutrient dense and flavored, like garlic, herbs, fruit, or walnuts. I'm sure they'd make some pretty nifty muffins, too. I'm still trying to figure out how to make bread or muffins in the oven.

I ate a slice with mashed avocado smeared onto it.

*you may need more or less flour depending on the brand and your preferences. I used Bob's Red Mill - it's all the grocery stores around here carry. Keep it wrapped and refrigerated to keep it fresher longer.

That looks so YUMMY! I'm going to try it! Can you use other flours to replace the almond or does it have to be almond?

One day...

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

You should also add this to one of the Gluten free recipe threads.

I have a recipe for a cocoa cake made in a coffee mug in the microwave. Not sure if I posted it to a dessert thread yet or not. I'll check that and post it if not. I've been planning on experimenting with other flours and using a sugar substitute.

I'm not sure if this really counts as nutrient dense, but it's pretty tasty, healthy and fast for those of us who are lazy or short on time:


You should also add this to one of the Gluten free recipe threads.

I have a recipe for a cocoa cake made in a coffee mug in the microwave. Not sure if I posted it to a dessert thread yet or not. I'll check that and post it if not. I've been planning on experimenting with other flours and using a sugar substitute.


Indeed. I just made a chocolate cake using basically the same base ingredients + almond milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and stevia.

I need to figure out how to make a decent healthy frosting.

Curried Salmon Salad

http://www.marksdail...d-salmon-salad/

QUOTE
Salmon, lettuce, avocado, slivered almonds and green onions mixed with the complexity and bold flavors of an array of ground spices – garam masala, turmeric, coriander, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne


See the link for complete instructions. I don't think I need to explain how this is super nutrient dense. Although for those that don't know, contrary to popular belief, lettuce is not nutritionally void. Iceberg lettuce is nutritionally void. Most others, romaine for example, are about as nutritious as other dark greens like spinach, collards, etc. I should make this today actually. I have all the ingredients including an open container of coconut milk.

You can buy a garam masala blend, btw. You don't have to get all those spices although you should have some of them on hand.

Cajun blackened chicken liver with lemon and garlic on a bed of greens. They recommend a salad of lettuce or spinach, but I think sauteed greens would also be nice. And I would try to get organic, free range chicken. Unfortunately, I just made my once every 3-4 week trip to Whole foods.

See link for instructions with photos:

http://www.marksdail...mon-and-garlic/

* 1 pound chicken livers
* 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
* 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or less, depending on how spicy you like it)
* 1 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon onion powder
* 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
* 3/4 teaspoon white pepper (optional)
* 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
* 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
* 6 cups spinach leaves, lettuce leaves

The Primal Fitness Cookbook is available for download, free for subscribers at Marksdailyapple.com. This is a source of many recipes already posted here and in other recipe threads.

Most recipes will qualify as really super nutrient dense. And then there's plenty that are made with substitutes for empty refined carbs like wheat or other foods that aren't particularly valuable. Like substituting riced cauliflower for the bed of rice you'd have with your curry or stir fry.

Recipe: Turkey pozole soup with green chilies
Michael Lomonaco, executive chef at Porter House New York

Tons of great herbs, spices and veggies!!!

[Note: You can make it vegetarian by leaving out the turkey and using veggie broth. Also, be sure to get hominy that has been nixtamalized to free up bound nutrients and reduce anti-nutrients. Try the Hispanic section of your markets. See the ZAG enzyme thread for more info]

Ingredients

* 2 pounds turkey meat cut into 1 inch cubes
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 2 large onions, peeled and chopped
* 2 red peppers, seeded and chopped
* 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
* 2 tablespoons ground cumin
* 2 tablespoons Ancho chili powder
* 2 tablespoons peeled, chopped garlic
* 1 15 ounce can chopped green chilies
* 1 cup crushed tomatoes
* 2 quarts chicken broth
* 1 28 ounce can golden or white hominy (or get dried and cook it)
* 1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
* 1/2 cup chopped scallions
* Sour cream
* Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Serving

Pour the oil into a large, heavy-bottomed pot and heat over medium heat.

Season the turkey with salt and pepper. Add to the pot and sauté in until well-browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the turkey to a bowl and set aside.

Add the onions, red pepper and jalapeño to the pot and brown until golden, which takes approximately seven minutes.

When the onion begins to caramelize, return the turkey to the pot, sprinkle with the cumin and Ancho chili powder, stir in the garlic, green chilies and tomatoes.

Add the chicken broth plus 2 cups of water, stir and bring it to a boil over high heat. Lower then heat and let the chili simmer, partially covered, for one hour.

Add the hominy. Continue to cook until the turkey is tender, which takes approximately 15 minutes.

Taste and adjust the seasoning and serve with cilantro, scallions and sour cream as a topping.

So, this may not be nutrient dense, but if you make it with spaghetti squash and skip the cheese, there's no negatives in it. Provided you aren't intolerant to the few ingredients, of course.
QUOTE
Spaghetti With Fried Eggs

Yield 2 or 3 servings

Time 20 minutes

Mark Bittman
Summary

Adapted from Arthur Schwartz.

In this dish, sometimes known as \'\'poor man\'s spaghetti,\'\' you fry a couple of eggs in the olive oil after removing the garlic, which is not browned but \'\'blonded\'\' (\'\'imbiondito\'\'), cooked lightly in good olive oil and then removed from it. Tossed with the pasta, the eggs and oil create a creamy, delicious sauce.
Ingredients

* Salt
* 1/2 pound thin spaghetti
* 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or lard
* 2 large cloves garlic, lightly smashed and peeled
* 4 eggs
* Freshly ground black pepper
* Freshly grated Parmesan or pecorino cheese, optional

Method

* 1. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Start the sauce in the next step, and start cooking the pasta when the water boils.
* 2. Combine garlic and 4 tablespoons of the oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic, pressing it into the oil occasionally to release its flavor; it should barely color on both sides. Remove the garlic, and add the remaining oil.
* 3. Fry the eggs gently in the oil, until the whites are just about set and the yolks still quite runny. Drain the pasta, and toss with the eggs and oil, breaking up the whites as you do. (The eggs will finish cooking in the heat of the pasta.) Season to taste, and serve immediately, with parmesan if you like.



Note that the eggs are to finish cooking with the heat from the spaghetti as you stir it around, so your squash needs to be really hot or maybe you need to keep it over low heat as you stir it up.

And maybe there's some umami Asian thing you can sprinkle on it for those that aren't eating cheese? (Since I think the slightly crunchy and sweet squash tastes Asian.) Maybe chopped green onions? And maybe add a little baby spinach to wilt? Or some peas?

You can steam the squash if you have a wide steamer. I unscrewed the center post of one of those ordinary metal collapsible steamers which lets it lay flat in a wide pot. Steaming is faster and better than the dry heat of the oven, imho.

Seen on the Today show with a Moroccan Lamb stew recipe. Yet another way to use cauliflower as a substitute for grains and bread. See the Better Breads thread for how to use in place of pizza dough, bread sticks, bread crumbs, etc.

Recipe: Cauliflower 'couscous'
Ben Ford
Ingredients

* 2 tablespoon olive oil
* 2 teaspoon cumin seeds
* 2 teaspoon ground turmeric
* 1 large yellow onions, diced
* 3 garlic cloves, chopped
* 3 whole cauliflower, shaved (see below, save stalks, they make a good soup)
* 2 sweet red peppers, roasted and diced
* 2 Jalapeño pepper, roasted and diced
* 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
* 1 tablespoon mint, finely sliced
* 1 tablespoon basil, finely sliced
* 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
* 1 tablespoon butter to finish.
* Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
* * Regular cooked couscous can be substituted for the cauliflower

Preparation

Shave the cauliflower florets with a knife into couscous size 'grains.' or use a food processor to get a consistent size that resembles couscous, the grain.

Heat the oil in a large skillet.

Add the spices and gently heat until the mustard seeds pop.

Add the onion and garlic and let them soften.

Add the cauliflower and diced peppers to the onion.

Cover and allow to steam until tender — 5 minutes or so.

Finish with butter, mint, basil, parsley, kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Several shake/smoothie recipes from Marks Daily Apple. Acutally, there's 5.

http://www.marksdail...-primal-shakes/

Some are berry and greens like our green smoothies. Some are cocoa/coconut. And some are savory rather than sweet.
